Frequently Asked Questions


Where do I enter my discount code?

If you have received a discount code or gift voucher, after adding your selected workshop to your cart, simply click checkout.  On the checkout page there is an area to enter your code and have the discounted amount removed from the total price. 

What’s the difference between “Workshops" and “Make a Project” sessions?

Workshops are hands on, project based classes that teach practical skills and techniques.  After enrolling in a workshop you are welcome to return to the studio for Make a Project sessions to practicse the skills you learned and work on your own projects. Make a Project sessions are not taught classes although supervision, advice and encouragement are always on hand.   

During Make a Project sessions the tools you have access to are only tools and equipment that you have previously been introduced to during the workshops you've attended.  During Make a Project sessions you are required to bring your own metal and consumables.   See Make a Project for more information. 

Where are you located? 

The studio is located in Chislehurst just a 5 mins walk from the Royal Parade and conveniently accessed by buses and free on street parking.  Please visit the contact page for public transportation details. 

For security reasons our specific address has been omitted.  After booking your workshop you will be sent the address of the studio in your confirmation email.

One-to-one private sessions are £30/hour. Private group workshops are based on the cost of the workshop and the number of people.   

Can I make a specific piece of jewellery I have in mind during a workshop?
